    The problem is that the plastic expands during the brewing process causing the plastic to rub against itself. Called Cuisinart. They told me to wait an hour or until plasic lid cools before opening lid.

The squeaking could be from the steam during the brew cycle. My first suggestion would be to wait a couple of minutes after the brew cycle has finished (after you enjoy your first, delicious cup) then open the cover. If you notice any warping or if the problem persists call Cuisinart directly.

Top engine stays cool while bottom half gets hot. water reservoir high while radiator low.


First You have to bleed out all the air in the cooling system.
If that doesn't fix it then the system is probably clogged. Also the thermostat could be not opening.
Hope this helps.

Does the b60 have filter and were is it


The filter assembly is several inches tall, with a basket-like holder for the cartridge at its base. The unit snaps in place over the outlet in the base of the water reservoir.

Lift and remove the cover of the water reservoir, which is located on the left side of the coffee maker.

Turn the filter unit's round replacement date dial to two months in the future. This offers a reminder of when it's time to check and replace the filter.

Open the cage at the bottom of the filter assembly. Insert the soaked and rinsed filter cartridge, and then snap the cage closed.

Position the filter assembly directly over the water outlet in the base of the reservoir. Push the unit down slightly until the assembly locks into place. You should feel it click into position.

4 fans bought in April from Costco and pac tested. 1 makes a a funny sound when plugged and does not work.. Can this be brought to a centre to be repaired as a callout cost 55 pounds Many thanks Mrs...


It sounds like you bought these items online from Costco, unless you have a Costco close by. Using the term "pounds" tells me you are in England someplace. A repair shop should be able to repair the problem easily and quickly. The noise you hear might be from the motor that is trying to start. Did you try a different power supply to see if the problem is your power outlet? You might try that. Cheers.

How do you fill the water tank on the steamer conair model GS15RN?


FOR HOUSEHOLD USE ONLY
FILLING INSTRUCTIONS
1. Place the unit on a stable surface.
2. While holding the water tank with one
hand, move the release lever toward the
power cord.
3. With the reservoir released, pull up on
the reservoir to remove it from the body of
the unit.
4. Turn the reservoir over, revealing the rubber
inlet cover.
5. Open the inlet cover and fill the tank
with everyday tap water (filtered water may
reduce hard water problems).
6. Close the inlet cover and return the
reservoir to its place, making sure that the
reservoir is secure.

Hope this helps! Hal

Don't understand how it works


This coffee maker has a hot water reservoir that heats and stores hot water so it can brew coffee faster. Once you fill the reservoir by pouring a potful of cold water into the top, you can turn on the switch at the side of the unit and in about 10 minutes the water in the reservoir will be hot. I usually leave this switch turned on to keep the water in the reservoir hot. The front switch turns on the pot warmer at the front of the unit, so it should be turned off unless you are making coffee or keeping a pot warm. To make a fresh pot, put a filter and ground coffee in the removable filter basket, slide the basket into the unit, place an empty carafe on the warming burner and using a separate container pour fresh water into the filler at the top of the unit. The fresh water displaces the hot water in the reservoir and voila, the coffee carafe starts to fill. The amount of fresh water you added is the amount of coffee you will end up with, less a little bit that might have evaporated if you only make coffee every morning or less often. Most units have a plunger under the filler lid that keeps the fresh water from going in to the hot water reservoir until you close the lid, so close it after pouring in the water. Also, turn off the front switch if the carafe is getting low or empty, as it can get hot enough to crack the carafe. If you're not going to be using the coffee maker for several days, turn off the side switch or unplug the unit to save energy and reduce evaporation from the reservoir. I love mine. It makes great coffee and is much quicker than the drip type.
